18 weeks

All is well on the baby front. Heartbeat is 135 BMP and baby is developing normally. I think s/he is pretty darn cute, too.

I now have a bump and it makes me feel better about seeing the numbers on the scale finally start to increase. I think I've gained almost 5 lbs. now, which would normally freak me out, but I know it's a good thing.

I'm eager to find some maternity pants, skirts and shorts, and some long tanks and a couple of summer dresses. Alas, this will have to wait until next payday. Thank goodness there is a four-day weekend coming up where I can live in yoga gear.

For anyone not-yet-pregnant or who is planning to have another kiddo, I've found that since I've popped, but have no maternity pants, the BellaBand is a real life saver. Yes, I am sitting at my desk with my pants unbuttoned. :) But the handy dandy BellaBand is holding them up.


  1. You look adorable!! Wear that baby bump with pride girl.
    And I wanted to say thanks for your comment on my most recent post. That was really sweet of you to put Sarah and Alyah in your prayer chain.
    Thanks again

  2. You have that preggie glow! You look beautiful sporting your little bump!

  3. Glad to see the bump has finally emerged. I know you must love it. Enjoy! Hope you can find some cute, affordable maternity clothes.

  4. you definitely have the glow, meghan. i have a suspicion you're having a boy, and i'm having a girl (my bpm was 179... i've heard girls have higher ones, and boys lower)... but it's just a hunch. :) happy shopping (once payday comes!). em.
